Fix : Images Not Downloading in Google App in Android

For every Android phone, Google App comes preinstalled.

You can use voice search to find images and other information.

As you know Google changed the way it displays images in search.

You cannot directly download the pictures, jpg, png, gif to your local storage location.

One has to click the website where the image is displayed and then you can save it to your local folder location.

These images can be used for different purposes like sharing them with your friends, modifying them to include in your Photoshop files and include in your blog posts.

Redmi Note phones use a different interface than the conventional Android phones. With each new mobile phone, Android OS is updated and a new interface comes into existence.

The below tutorial and fix works for all Android phones. But since I’m using a Redmi Note 4 phone, I have included screenshots from it.

With little trial and error, you can see the below settings all available brands like RealMe, Samsung, OnePlus etc.

The MIUI system of Redmi phones overlay the default Android version.

There have been different versions of these, like Note 4 and Note Pro 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9.
